"Pardon us, Florida, but we were promised giant asses and toothless public masturbators. Sigh, this is what being secretive gets you, we suppose."

Spoiler alert: Yep, probably.

Arcade Fire's new album Reflektor is nearly here and while a formal tour has yet to be announced, rumors suggest a series of secret shows around the country in the next few weeks.

Well, we suck at keeping secrets, so you might want to keep October 24 free if you're interested in seeing Arcade Fire's first-ever Florida concert. Also, your girlfriend is totally cheating on you.

After the cut, get the mysterious details and the link to buy tickets on Wednesday morning.

UPDATE Arcade Fire's Reflektor show in Miami has sold out in under five minutes.

UPDATE #2 Some more tickets have just been released for the Little Haiti show.

UPDATE #3 Arcade Fire is reportedly returning to Miami for two nights in April 2014.

The Reflektors: Are they faceless or are their mouths just open that wide to sing uplifting melodies?

Doop dee doo...

Be with you in a second, just checking the Rhythm Foundation calendar. Oh! On October 24, a band called The Reflektors is playing. If you're not Pitbull, we've never heard of you (¡Dale!), but their photo does look familiar.

We could analyze the above band image for clues and wonder if the surviving face-melted Nazis from the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark finally put a bat mitzvah band together. But this one is pretty easy to figure out and not only because the Rhythm Foundation helpfully provided a video of Arcade Fire playing next to the concert listing.

Aside from that eerie, eerie coincidence, Arcade Fire has already released a promo single for the new album under the name The Reflektors. The venue makes sense, given that band co-founder Régine Chassagne is of Haitian descent and the band has done considerable fundraising for Haitian earthquake relief. This show is scheduled to benefit Big Night in Little Haiti, the monthly third Friday Haitian culture and music event.

If this is indeed an Arcade Fire show, you'll want to head over to this Flavorus.com link to buy your tickets, which go on sale October 16 at 10 a.m.

I preordered the album on Amazon a week ago but didnt get a code. I guess you had to buy it from the band's own site.  I'm so disappointed.
